Google set to past Microsoft in Market Valuation

Google is set to past Microsoft in market valuation. Google’s stock has been on fire since the summer and is trading all-time high while Microsoft has been pretty flat in the last 10 years with a little growth lately. The future of Microsoft is on the shoulders of Windows 8 which is currently being rolled out. I also wouldn’t count MSFT in the long run. They are getting into the hardware with the Surface and a potential phone. Hopes are high with Windows 8 and its push in the tablet/mobile segment.

As of 9:54ET October 1st:

GOOG market cap: $247.29B
MSFT: $249.49B

Comparable market cap:
FB: $48.1B
AAPL: $627.69B (#1 in the world)
